      Comments about Texsport Stainless Steel Mess Kit:

      The picture shown is the old mess set. They have now changed the handle of the skillet that closes over entire set. not as smooth latch mess kit doesn't stay together like the old kind. I was disappointed when i got it. They seemed to have copied off another brand that had that type of handle with the little crook in it at the end of handle yet their old smooth finish they had worked better to hold kit together.

      I had one already like this and the clamp that holds it together on this one doesn't stay clamped together. maybe its a different brand than my other one, but it is aggrevating to keep it together in backpack.

        Over the past several years, we have tried several different mess kits and have decided to only hand these out to our scouts. We give them to all our 1st year Webelos Scouts and they use them through the entire scouting program.

                Looking for a replacement for my old aluminum boyscout messkit I picked up this poorly designed stainless kit. The individual pieces don't nest snugly and it rattles to the point of being a nuisance during hiking. The hinged handle is unsteady, and while the silicone coating is a nice feature it is not easily lifted from a roaring fire. The pot is way too small, and I couldn't make anything worth a darn, without it overflowing the second It started to boil. Good for warming up canned beans, and that is about it. The plastic measuring cup is of course, made in china. The steel is of decent quality, and it is lightweight, but I would never recommend it to anyone, due to its mediocre design flaws. IfI hadn't already tried to cook with it I would return it. My stainless tea kettle is a better cooking tool than this.

                  Comments about Texsport Stainless Steel Mess Kit:

                  I chose this set because Campmor states the pot is 1/2 quart size. Half a quart is 16 oz. which is what I wanted. When it caame I was shocked. The pot is tiny. I checked the box, and the manufacturer clearly states the pot is only 12 oz. Had I known this, I wouldn't have ordered it. Also, Campmor calls it a 'boiling pot' which also is a lie. The maufacture calls it a sauce pot, which is accurate--you can't cook or boil anything in a pot the size of a mug; it's only big enough for a tiny amount of sauce to go on other food. Why does Campmor change the manufacturer's words to an outright lie? A 12 oz pot is not 16 oz or 1/2 quart. Since you have to pay to postage yourself, it's not worth returning. But I will never order anything from Campmor again, as this couldn't possiably be a mistake. I can't trust Campmor's ads.

                  I really like this kit except for the fact that it has rubber all the way down the handle (at least on my frying pan). This became an issue when cooking over an open fire because the rubber got soft and melted a bit. Besides that issue, it's just a steel mess kit. You can't really get it that wrong.
